    Are they in any stores, or do you have to go to the brewery?

    Found it from a guy on reddit, looks like it’s sold out from his store. He has the same username as his website

    At around 85-90 minutes from me, Electric is just a little bit outside the zone by which I'd be willing to drive to pick up. I'm hoping they start distributing but am not holding my breath.

    Brewery is all I have seen. Odd Muse was at Lonestar the other day so maybe False Idol too.

    You happen to know where they're going? :peekaboo:

    I know two places that have Casa around here but not usually much of a selection.

    New releases look great man, congrats.

    Random question for you - of the more standard hops that you guys use (Citra, Nelson, Mosaic, Galaxy, etc.) which ones are the most expensive and/or hardest to get? Just curious as to what the brewers look at as the most valuable or difficult hops (regardless of taste preference).

    Wandering tortoise. Owner of that place also owns other places that the bet goes to but WT is the main place.

    Galaxy and Nelson are by far the hardest and most expensive. It took us 4 years to get a galaxy contract and we hope to have a Nelson contract next year. They are on average about $5-$15 more a pound than mosaic and Citra depending on whether you have a contract or not. Quality of those varies quite a bit depending on if you have a contract or not too.

    Too sweet up front with a bad after taste. It tastes like a grapefruit. Not a grapefruit IPA but a grapefruit.

    Thanks, that's interesting and I assumed those two were probably the hardest/most expensive based on how breweries act when they have a good Galaxy/Nelson beer, but good to hear that. Definitely appreciate breweries that go above and beyond and try to do some really good things with the more expensive hops.

    I had two beers with Riwaka recently, and I assume that one is expensive/hard to get too since it looks like its an NZ-based hop, but damn were they both excellent.

    Riwaka is the most rare. New Zealand crop are expanding so Nelson and riwaka will become more available in the next few seasons. Nelson has already become more available than seasons past.

    PHX is a big area, one can never assume. If you mean actual PHX I live downtown so yeah let's do this. We can hit the Theodore (owned by the Sleepy Whale ppl) and Wilderness.
